TornadoWeb - nice but incomplete

Posted at — Jul 8, 2012

Quickie: TornadoWeb is a very nice framework.  I used it to build a cool RESTful payment gateway. But after reading Davis' blog about asynchronous mongoDB+TornadoWeb I realized that TW is good for very shallow transactions. Any sort of decision making or series of callbacks are non-trivial and as about as much fun as NodeJS' callbacks.NOT!
